I'm not a sports lover, so didn't hold out much hope for this, boy was I wrong! It has a bit of everything, love and romance, chunks of erotica, mystery, and suspense. So much suspense I was. Hanging off the die of my seat. Needless to say, I highly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars There is steam and sweetness - a great combination for a romance. 20 Sept. 2015
By Heather G - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
When two perfectly matched hearts are damaged almost beyond all repair – what do they do when they find each other? This is the question and the crux of Collen Charles’s new novel “Closing the Gap.”
The book starts with a band, literally. Lake Harrison is running from her abusive ex, and somehow, someway, the man has a gun. It’s a tense scene that sets the tone for the entire tale and offers a slice of understanding in a web of confusion. Lake has been hurt, countless times, by someone she once loved. It’s a brutal truth, but Lake owns it, and becomes stronger for it – or despite it. When people question why abused women stay in relationships, a glimpse inside Lake’s well written thoughts may answer that question, or at least give insight to a situation few can, or should, understand.
When Lake and bad boy Hockey player, ‘The Trashman’ Josh Adams have a date for charity, the sparks fly and the past comes back to haunt both of them.
It’s an interesting, and highly emotional romance that touches on themes many leave alone, culminating in a satisfying read that will make you close the book with a smile.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thrilling second chance romance 1 Oct. 2015
By Kitty Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This one really knocked my socks off! Romance and horses, sure, what's not to love, but throw in a psycho (and I mean REALLY psycho) ex and things get crazy fast. Lake is beautifully developed as this deeply scarred woman who is finally allowing herself to take a chance on love again. While you have an idea of what she's endured going in, the whole story unravels a little at a time to keep you on the edge of your seat.

Meanwhile Josh Adams comes to the table as this playboy ex jock with more than his fair share of conquests, but as you get to know him you start to understand why he's sort of become a man ho, and I couldn't help but feel for the guy. Lake's sister is ever disapproving of the two of them hooking up, and it's clear that each person's baggage won't make it an easy relationship, but it's also obvious that they share a connection that could heal them both. The ultra steamy scenes between them clear up any doubts as to their compatibility, heh.

Buck is the villain you hate. Not love to hate, just hate. He is every woman's worst nightmare, and his obsession with Lake is terrifying and deadly. I alternated between wanting to know what he was up to, and hoping he'd find a deep hole to fall into somewhere and never be heard from again!

It's an exciting, second chance romance with damaged but strong characters and plenty of excitement along the way. Plus, horses! Great read!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful new author 29 Aug. 2015
By Lynn Reads - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I'm really enjoying this new author, especially the humor she sprinkles in her books. I don't like giving spoilers, so I'll just say that I was pulled into the plot and liked the characters a great deal. Witty. Suspenseful. A good mixture of everything I like in a book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome beginning to a new series!!! 16 Dec. 2015
By Sue Ann B - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I will start with stating that Colleen Charles is a new author for me to read. I was asked to read her new series and when I first started CLOSING THE GAP - which is the first book of the Dangerous Pasts series - I wasn't really sure what to expect.

I found that she put so much description in the beginning of the book -- that it was hard to figure out exactly where she was going. But once I got past that part, I realized that this detailing of this was so necessary!!! Without the details, there are a lot of things that just would not have made sense!!!

Lake (the main character of this book) is a victim of domestic violence. Because of the way that she was treated by her ex-husband, she doesn't feel like she deserves to be loved. I don't write spoilers - so I will just say, you need to read the book!!! Like I said before - the beginning goes slowish - but then when it picks up, you will find it hard to put this book down!!!

I received a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review. All opinions in this review are 100% my own.

5.0 out of 5 stars A romantic thriller 2 Oct. 2015
By Kylee Mesneak - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This story was romantic and sweet and scary all at the same time! I loved Lake's character. This is a woman who has been to hell and back with her first husband and she's lucky to even be alive. I loved seeing her slowly take her life back and get back on her feet, and especially seeing her learn to trust someone with her heart again. Josh was perfect as the sexy, wealthy ex hockey player with the bad boy reputation. On the surface he's like a total player but deep down he's a really great guy who has just been badly hurt in love. They make the perfect couple, although it isn't easy for them to let their walls down for each other. Meanwhile Lake's ex, a lunatic named Buck, is still obsessing over her. He's so crazy he even hates her horses. I loved how the other characters added so much to the story! Josh's buddy becomes this awesome BFF, big brother to Lake, and her sister is always watching out for her too. Loved this, so romantic but also very thrilling and full of suspense.
